For AN’s third annual design awards, seven jurors gathered in New York to review nearly 500 projects submitted by architects and designers.

The jury included Amale Andraos, dean of Columbia Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation; Nicholas Koster, project manager at Snøhetta; Chee Perlman, editor and curator of Chee Company; Ana Garcia Puyol, computational designer at Thornton Tomasetti; Ali Tayar; founder of Parallel Design Partnership, Terence Riley, founding partner at Keenan/Riley, and Mimi Zeiger, AN’s west coast editor.

In each category, a winner and an honorable mention were selected, although there were a couple of ties. Over the coming days, we will be posting their selections in the 21 categories.

This project was commissioned by Dacra and LVMH Real Estate to design a portion of the City View Garage in Miami’s Design District. Sited along the edge of the Design District adjacent to I195, the facade acts as a billboard for the Design District. This portion of the facade wraps around the main corner of the garage. The design employs a digitally-fabricated modulated metal screen whose folded aluminum modules of varying apertures yield a porosity that allows for natural ventilation. The office facade is designed using a standard storefront system that is modulated with a gradient pattern of glass sizes.
